Viral is a project for 16-25 year olds who want to work in the creative and digital industries, but who don’t have the opportunities, facilities and connections they need. The project is for young people from diverse backgrounds, including those not in work or training.
Over six months the young people receive production training, business development, mentoring, showcasing opportunities and peer-to-peer support. The project focuses on a range of disciplines including music, film, photography and design.
Viral is supported by Arts Council England, Re-Imagine Europe, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Chalk Cliff Trust, The Ernest Kleinwort Charitable Trust, Brilliant Noise, Brandwatch, and Baxter & Bailey.
